Some more riddles for you folks.
    #3136486 - 09/14/04 11:03 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

1- Clarence's favorite joke is to switch the signs on the fish barrels. Today he mixed up the signs of the carp barrel, the catfish barrel, and the crap-and-catfish barrel, deliberately hanging each sign on the wrong barrel. Clarence will let you see only one fish. But it can be from any barrel you choose. Using this information, can you restore the signs to their rightful barrels? How?

2- Uncle Alec's will read that the two remaining heirs, Polly and William, must stage a horse race, and the family inheritance would go to the heir that owned the LOSING horse. The trainer speculated that with these rules, the race might never end. But the art of the deal ran deep in the family veins, and between them Polly and William managed to agree on a plan that would ensure a good, sportsmanlike race. What plan did they decide on to accomplish this?

3-Hilda D. Rosen, Earl Wade, and Roy Kewn had a big laugh at the convention when they realized that the letters of their names, when rearranged, spelled out the names of each of their home States. From what State does each of these delegates hail?

4- When Helen and Frank were married 21 years ago, Frank was three times as old as Helen. Today he is twice as old as she. How old was Helen on her wedding day?

Okay, I'll take a guess at #4: Helen was 19 and Frank was 59. Is that right?

ooops, my bad...carp-and-catfish.

toilet- she was 21.







ANSWERS:

1-Yes, start by choosing a fish from the "carp-and catfish" barrel. Since every barrel is incorrectly signed, you already know that this barrel cannot contain "carp-and catfish"...it has to contain only one type of fish. Say you drag out a carp. ..you can then correcly place the carp label on this barrel. Next ask what fish are in the barrel albeled "catfish"? They cannont be carp, and they can't be catfish either or the label would be correct. They must be "carp-and-catfish". THe "carp" barrel, then, must contain the catfish.


2- Polly and William agreed to switch horses. (OWNER of the LOSING horse wins...if they switch horses and win on the other horse, they win cause their horse lost)

3- Rhode Island, Delaware, and New York

4- Helen was 21 when she was married.
